All Hail ‘Hitman: Subtitle’

By Alec Meer on May 16th, 2011 at 9:31 am.

Because 'Hitman: Another One' would have been going too far

Morning, giggles. How’s every little thing? To start you off for the new week, let’s have a good old belly-laugh at leaked marketing materials for the mysterious Hitman: Absolution. Or, as these presumably work in progress box covers (via Kotaku) claim it’s called, “Hitman: Subtitle.” Y’know what, I’d have bought extra copies if it really was called that. There’s an honesty to it. “The bit after the colon doesn’t mean anything but people expect it – just put any old melodramatic guff in there.” So Hitman: Subtitle it must officially remain on RPS, forever. Coming up next – Red Faction: Sequel.

    Fantastic paragraph. You made me smile, then laugh.

    And please tell the good folks at World of Tanks that we Opera browser users support their game and its non-browser-crashing advertisement. It’s good to be back.

    The Sims 4: Another game where we will make thousands of expansions with things we could have put in the game from the beginning, but we didn’t, because we wanted to make more money. Its not like we don’t have money, cause we got alot, but we are just being greedy.

    Wow! That is one long title.

  31. twosai says:

    “World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria.”

    Lol. That would be one sucking game.

    Wait a minute….
